Details

Nodeunit works ok but it feels at times like we're fighting it. 

Limitations are as follows:

* It doesn't work well with super-request
* It only counts it's own assertions.
* It doesn't really support using other assertion libs. Whilst you can use them they won't be working in an integrated way.
* It's assertions are limited. 


If we need to do any significant work tweaking tests we should maybe consider moving to using something else like mocha + chai + whatever (Which at a glance seems much more modular).
yes please! We need to find the Nose of Node.js.
